Blessed Eustaquio stops all traffic! (Brazil)

Two corners of the block where the Sanctuary of Health and Peace, the Church of Father Eustaquio, is located in Belo Horizonte (Brazil), have seen some changes on the pedestrian traffic lights.  The illuminated lights now shows the silhouette of Father Eustaquio with the Sacred Hearts.

The project was requested by the Communication team of the National Secretariat for the Cause of Canonization of Blessed Father Eustaquio, given the cultural and traditional importance that the figure of this religious brings to the neighborhood and the entire city of Belo Horizonte.

Inspired by a project of the Municipal Secretariat of Culture of the capital of Minas Gerais, the National Secretariat, in partnership with BHTrans (Belo Horizonte Transport and Traffic Company), printed a silhouette of the face of Father Eustaquio on the pedestrian traffic lights at the intersections of Padre Eustaquio Street with Cesário Alvim Street and Castigliano Street.

The traffic signs have attracted the attention of many people, who take pictures and comment on social networks. The idea is that this place becomes increasingly recognized as a point for religious tourism in the state, welcoming both pilgrims and tourists from all over the country and even from outside Brazil.
